Ascent Trip Report

Forest Rd 39 has no sign on Hwy 542, However there is a sign for "Glacier Cr Rd". Once you turn on Glacier Cr Rd you will see Forest Service signs.

The great weather brought out a lot of people. I must have seen over a dozen people in my time on the mountain.

This was my first big climb after not doing anything in the winter. No wonder I was so slow.
